could this be the singular, most-out-there piece of grateful dead music EVER?

cue it up at drums/space, and listen to the first 4-5 minutes. tell me it’s not.

Hey guy...I can confirm...I was there with my wife to be. Though I have since turned to the dark side, with my exclusive love of 68-70, I did really enjoy this night. And it wasn't because love or drugs were in the air.

I thought that they were coming together vis a vis Brent, and sorry, but we were beginning to appreciate the absence of Donna's deal breakers coming thru in PitB or GSetold.

Thanks for the reminder of this special night; it was one of those that I missed the NY's show...but the lead in nights were pretty darn good.

lucky duck! thanks for sharing. surely from time to time, after those little green men moments, the band must have looked at each other, shrugged their shoulders and thought - WTF was that? thank goodness for you, the soon to be mrs tell, and everyone else in attendance, 'they' came in peace ; )

You may not believe this, BUT I was at that show too. A little less impressive that the Dec run, but that was not unusual. Hot day in the Bay Area, but a special night in terms of many of us seeing Brent for the first time.

Good deal.
